ToughGlaze have formed a Strategic Partnership with SpanLite, the UK’s leading manufacturers of LED edge-lighting, to enhance the range of innovative glass products that architects, specifiers and designers can have at their request.
Lightcode technology takes edge-lighting to new levels, designed and produced by Spanlite. Lightcode will comfortably light up to 2.7m in height with one light source or 3.5m with dual light source. This light is evenly distributed across the panel.
Lightcode is a proprietary LED edge-lighting technology designed to back-illuminate a variety of materials including ToughGlaze’s digitally printed glass options, DIP Tech & Sentry Expressions. It can also back-light onyx, marble, decorative glass, and graphic displays including super-slim lightboxes. Lightcode panels can even be ceiling-mounted to illuminate stretch ceiling installations.
It consists of an acrylic panel with a bespoke pattern applied to one side. When LED light is shone into the edge of the panel, it refracts when it hits the pattern, and is sent back out through the front face. The pattern is custom-calibrated for every application to create an illuminated panel of evenly spread brightness.
